Oregon black truffles (Leucangium Carthusianum) are slightly larger and less common than Oregon white truffles. They have a pungent, ‘earthy-pineapple’ aroma and a strong flavor.
black truffles are most commonly found amongst the roots of Douglas fir
trees that are twelve or more years old. Nestled 6-12 inches beneath
the layer of needles that collects under each tree, the truffles enjoy a
symbiotic relationship with their trees and (if carefully harvested)
reappear in the same place year after year. Our expert foragers return
to the same secret patches every year to harvest these wild delicacies.
Oregon truffles may not offer the same potency that the fresh European
truffles do, but they are still very delicious and much more economical.
A great way to try fresh black truffles for the first time!
Looking for oregon black truffles out of season? Consider frozen Oregon black truffles.
Your Oregon truffles will be delicious when you first receive them, but for even better flavor store them in your fridge, check them every day watching for them to “sweat” and become more aromatic. At this point they are ripe and at peak flavor.
How to Store Fresh Truffles - also includes long-term preservation tips.
The awesome aroma of the truffle can be weakened by heat, so that's why we recommend adding truffles late in the cooking process or at the end as a finishing ingredient. Simply shave them raw over your favorite dish like risotto, mashed potatoes, pasta, cheese pizza or even scrambled eggs.
